SLO County inmates sew blankets, pajamas for North County homeless shelter

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Women’s Honor Farm Sewing Program on Monday donated pillows, pajamas, and blankets to the El Camino Homeless Shelter (ECHO).

The items were handmade by inmates who have elected to be a part of the Women’s Honor Farm Sewing Program. Sheriff’s officials say the program provides the inmates with valuable skills and gives them the opportunity to give back to the community.

In the past, the Women’s Honor Farm Sewing Program has donated vests and capes for children battling cancer, baby quilts and bibs for a local pregnancy support non-profit, and handmade teddy bears for the "Get on the Bus" program.

ECHO serves the northern San Luis Obispo County area.
